Liposuction Plastic Surgery Houston & Lake Jackson
At our offices in Houston and Lake Jackson, liposuction and other procedures are in-demand and effectively performed by Dr. Yarish and Dr. Bartlett.
Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure, also commonly referred to as ‘lipo.’ It is the process of body contouring and sculpting by removing unwanted pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise when trying to lose weight. Some of the commonly treated areas are the abdomen, hips, arms, thighs, saddlebags, area around the bra line, and love handles. But any area of the body that displays unwanted fat can be an effective target for liposuction.
At Yarish Plastic Surgery, our doctors can perform liposuction surgery alone or combine it with a tummy tuck, facelift, fat grafting, breast augmentation, or any other cosmetic procedure.
Ideal Candidates For Liposuction, Houston & Lake Jackson
To qualify for liposuction and fat transfer, Houston and Lake Jackson experts Dr. Yarish and Dr. Bartlett require you to meet health qualifications and have realistic aesthetic expectations.
That’s because liposuction produces excellent results, but there is no cure-all for optimal body shaping, and individual results may vary. It’s important to note that liposuction doesn’t stop new fat cells from forming, and it is not an alternative to weight loss; it is best used for body contouring.
Besides that, you must be healthy with no contraindicating medical conditions before performing the procedure.
Health issues that may be a factor include:
- Disorders of the immune system.
- Disorders that impact blood clotting.
- Past reactions to anesthesia.
The best course is to make an appointment with Dr. Yarish or Dr. Bartlett to assess your unique health profile.
Other than being healthy, deciding factors for liposuction at Houston & Lake Jackson -based Yarish Plastic Surgery may mean that:
- You have a localized area of fatty accumulation that is disproportionate to the rest of your body.
- You want your figure to have more definition and a smoother contour.
- You are physically fit, and your weight is stable.
- You have good skin elasticity.
What is the process of liposuction at Houston & Lake Jackson-based Yarish Plastic Surgery?
You will be made comfortable during your liposuction procedure in our Houston or Lake Jackson locations. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia for the best results.
Occasionally our plastic surgeons will perform the procedure with local anesthesia if the areas are small and easily accessible. The liposuction sites will be covered with a compression garment immediately after your procedure. This is an outpatient procedure, and patients typically recover comfortably at home.
Multiple techniques exist for removing excess fat from your body through liposuction; however, generally, the fat is removed through a thin, hollow tube called a cannula.The most common cannula-based method we use at our practices are tumescent liposuction. (We actually don’t have Vaser anymore)
During tumescent liposuction, we use a local anesthetic and a wetting solution to constrict your blood vessels. Then we insert a thin tube into a small incision and suck the fat out gently using a well-maintained machine.
This option, specifically the constricted blood vessels aspect of the procedure, allows us to remove fat from your body in a way that minimizes blood loss and post-surgical pain.
Can you combine liposuction and fat transfer in Houston & Lake Jackson?
The short answer is yes! Liposuction is the process of removing unwanted fat cells from a number of areas of your body. In comparison, fat transfer is the process of taking fat cells from donor sites, cleaning and processing them, and then injecting them into another part of your body that you feel may be lacking.
By combining the procedures of liposuction and fat transfer, specialists Dr. Yarish and Dr. Bartlett will essentially be killing two birds with one stone. This is because as the fat is removed from one area of your body, it is immediately transferred to another. Examples combining liposuction and fat transfer in our locations are:
- Liposuction and fat transfer to the face can restore volume to the cheek area and smooth out wrinkles.
- Liposuction and a Brazilian butt lift to enhance or fill out your bum.
- Liposuction and fat transfer to the hands to minimize noticeable veins’ appearance and look less bony.
- Liposuction and then fat transfer to your breasts for a “natural” breast augmentation
Recovery From Liposuction
The recovery period from liposuction may vary, but most people return to work within a week. Our doctors will make the determination based on your liposuction procedure or procedures and your unique patient profile.
Some swelling and bruising could persist for a few weeks after this procedure. Discomfort is easily controlled with prescription medication and aftercare instructions provided. It is essential to follow all aftercare instructions and take pain medications when needed.
